Russian River Summer Cleanup Float

Come Get Wet at the Russian River Summer Cleanup Float

Float Date: September 16, 2017

As part of the Russian Riverkeeper Annual Russian River Cleanup, The Redwood Empire Chapter of Trout Unlimited (RETU) invites you to participate in a river cleanup day on September 16. After this winter's rains and a lot of summer use, there is a lot of debris in the water that needs to be hauled out. To do the cleanup, we will be working the section from Vacation Beach dam downstream to Monte Rio boat ramp.

We need people with rafts, canoes and driftboats with personal flotation devices - Vacation beach dam has limited parking and a boat launch. We also need people willing to be paddlers in boats. Volunteers signing up to paddle/float must be experienced paddlers, able to swim, and 18 or over.

All volunteers should bring a hat, sunscreen, water, lunch and a change of clothes. Upon registration, we will be in touch with any additional pertinent details for the day.
